Weddings. LUCEY-NEWALL. A. quiet wedding was celebrated by Rev. S. G. Fielding in St. Mat thew's (Anglican) Church on Wed nesday afternoon, the happy pair being Miss Mildred M.

Lucey (Master Ma riner), of the coasting boat, " Bobby Burns," and son of Captain Charles Lucey, of Mangrove, Hawkesbury River.

Tho Boys' Brigade. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 25 July 1902

Tho Boys' Brigade. On Saturday last a contingent of some 30 members of the different companies of the Boys' Brigade in Sydney paid their comrades in Richmond a visit. Arriving by the afternoon train, they found their way to the park, where a football match was played with a scratch team of the local lads. Naturally enough the visitors, whose football record stands at ll wins, 2 losses, and 1 draw, romped round their hosts, whose lack of practice, how ever, was largely atoned for by their infinite pluck. The result, 6 points to nil, scarcely indicates the actual play, as the ball was almost invariably to be found in the Rich mond half ; and the visitors gave a fine exhibition of good combination and unselfishness. The game over, and the cheers given and returned, the whole of the lads adjourned to the Presby terian Sunday school, where a thoroughly substantial repast awaited them, and which, naturally enough, they did ample justice to. Cheers, hearty and loud, were given for the ladi...

WISEMAN'S FERRY. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 25 July 1902

WISEMAN'S FERRY. We had a copious downfall of min during the week. Tanks were filled, and that dread want of fresh water which the people were beginning to feel, was much allayed. Most farmers ¿ave taken advantage of the late raino, and ploughing is going on right merrily. They hope to have a better crop than last season. Our quiet little hamlet was thrown into a state of panic on Saturday last. About dusk a band of gipsies entered the village quite unexpectedly, and at once set to work robbing peoples water tank«, telling fortunes, etc. Constable Loonies was quickly on the scene, and restored quiet after a deal of trouble. They are a curious ' herd," and fer downright cheek and impudence their equals would be hard to find.. One of the most enjoyable parties held for a long time, came off at Mr. Dave Phillips', " Pretoria Cottage," on Tuesday of last week, the occasion being the birthday of Mr. Kobort Douglass, eldest son of Mr. Henry Douglass, lately of Lower Hawkes bury, and now o...

Mr. W. Armour was appointed secretary, and he left nothing undone to ensure its success. For a couple of weeks he was kept busy organising matters, and his efforts were rewarded by a bumper attendance, and a sum of nearly £10 towards what waß required. Prior to the concert, the band marched up Georgo-Btreet, playing several fine pieces, and, halting at the School of Arts, they played a pretty selection. Unfortunately the inimitable Mr. George Woodhill, who was billed to provide the comic items, was absent. Miss Barnett was also u...

LOWER PORTLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 25 July 1902

LOWER PORTLAND. Over two inches of rain has fallen here during the past week. It was greatly needed, as most of the resi dents found it difficult to obtain fresh water for drinking purposes. Crops for early hay and green Btuff were at a standstill, but now that rain has fallen the growth is very apparent. Mr. E. Law, of the Tramway Department, accompanied by Mrs. Law, has been home for a few days spending a well-earned holiday. Mr. Everingham, from the deaf and dumb institution, has also been spending a few days with his river friends. It is reported that the lady mem bers of the local tennis club intend in future to dress in bloomers, as it is much more free and easy than the present style of dress. *Mr. J. Brown has just dug his arrowroot crop, which has not been BO satisfactory as in past seaeons. He informed the writer the other day that providing we have a fair Beason, he can grow about 4 tons to the acre. to take place between the local dub - A tennis match has been red

Doath of Mr. Robert Richards. PROPRIETOR OF THE RIVER. STONE MEAT WORKS. A NATIVE OF THE HAWKESBURY. AN UNEXPECTED AND SUDDEN END. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 25 July 1902

STONE MEAT WOBKÖ. A NATIVE OP THE HAWKES BURY, . AN UNEXPECTED AND SUDDEN END. The ead newe that Mr. Robert Richards, proprietor of the Riverstone Meat Works, had died suddenly at his residence, " HoJkhám," Allison road, Randwick, reached Windsor on Saturday morning last, and came as a great shock to the community. He was brother to Mrs. Durham, of "Kamilaroi," Eichmond, and first cousin to Mr. Thomas Riohards, of Windsor, and widely known in the Hawkesbury district, where he was born and spent the early part of his life. He was 61 years ot age, and up to the time of his death apparently enjoyed excellent health. It appears he was quite well on Saturday morn ing, but about 8 o'clock was attacked with cardiacal pains, and retired to bed again. He expired a few minutes later. He was a son of the late Mr. Benjamin Richards, of Windsor, who was perhaps the most successful pio neer of the Australian frozen meat export industry. Some thirty years ago, with his two sons, Robert ani James, ...

The Hawkesbury Hearld WINDSOR, FRIDAY, JULY 25, 1902. THE VOTE FOR WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 25 July 1902

WINDSOR, FRIDAY, JUI/S 25, l!k>2. THE VOTE FOR WOMEN. The old question of the extension of the electoral franchise to ihe fair sex was again brought into promin ence last week, when Sir John See moved for leave to introduce a bill to provide the privilege. Already the principle has twice been affirmed by the Assembly, and by over whelming majorities each time : but the Council could not be pre vailed upon to let it be added to the statutes. The Premier is going very strongly this time. He pledges himself that if the bill be not carried, his hon. friend, Mr. Lee, who is opposing it, will have a chance of occupying the Treasury benches. To that Mr. Lee retorts, "You're very valiant I" What the sarcasm implies is that the Premier feels pretty safe, as far as the As sembly is concerned. Its >pas6age thei-e is assured ; but what the Council will do this time remains to be seen. That august body ' may be influenced by the fact that the Federal Parliament have adopted adult suffrage....

COLO. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 25 July 1902

COLO. Mr. and Mrs. George Wood, of Upper Colo, who have for the past few weeks been Buffering from very severe colds, are, I am pleased to say, ou the high road to recovery. Mrs. Wood has been through a deal of sickness. The Messrs. Hippe, Toohey, and Males made matters rather lively for the wild ducks, redbills, and wallabies last week-that is, judging from the number of shots that were fired. The Messrs. Hippe and Toohey returned to Sydney on Wednesday, after spend ing a very enjoyable holiday in Colo. We hear that Mr. P. Reynolds, of Wilberforce, intends running a deal ing steamer on the river twice weekly between Windsor and Colo. Mr. Reynolds should do well, as there is sufficient' trade to be done for two steamers on the river. Anyhow, we wish him luck in his venture. Deep regret was expressed around here when the news of the late Mr. James Bordley Brown's death became know. Mr. Brown was much esteemed by all who knew him, and the deepest sympathy is felt for the bereaved wido...

COMPLETE STORY. The Woman in Blaok. (WRITTEN FOR THE " HERALD.") [By A. J. Med] He and I had rooms on the one flat. We often passed each other coming and going from the building, but beyond an occasional nod we never entered into conversation. He seemed a morose man - one whom it would be difficult to approach. We occasionally dined at the one restaurant, where my frequent at tempts to draw him into conversa tion failed. , I was sitting by the fireside in my room one evening, enjoying a pipe, when he knocked' and entered. He wished, he said, to borrow something readable to while away the time I always kept a moderately stocked library, and offered him his choice. After scanning the books in silence for some time, he chose a novel of very ordinary standing. He said he had read the book before, and could .V * readily read it again. I fully expected that his choice would fall upon one somewhat in - .. pooping .«witb--my- Opinion OÍUhis temperament. At my request he joined nie at the fi...
